I had noticed that when I used to eat, I was always doing something else like watching TV or reading. I would spend time and effort creating delicious meals but not enjoy them because my mind would be on something else.
Since I have recognised this, I now eat with no distractions. I smell my food and really taste it. I appreciate it more. I appreciate myself more for cooking properly and nourishing my body well. I eat slowly and make an effort to enjoy every mouthful. I’m always the last one to finish when with friends and family; but then I am not clogging my digestive system. I am giving it time and space to work to its optimum.
